Pay gap: what seven women FTSE CEOs earned in 2017

The High Pay Centre's annual report shows that the seven female blue chips bosses earned less than the mean of their male counterparts in 2017.

The High Pay Centre has released its study into FTSE 100 CEO pay, which revealed a 23% increase in the mean pay blue chip bosses from £4.6 million to £5.7 million. 

The highest paid CEO in the financial year ending 2017 was  Persimmon's Jeff Fairburn, who received £47.1 million, more than 20 times his pay in 2016. 

Overall, FTSE 100 companies are close to meeting the 33% target for women in senior leadership positions by 2020, as set by the Hampton-Alexander Review.

However, only 11% of executive board members are women – by the end of the 2017 financial year there were just 24 female executive directors in the FTSE 100 compared with 195 male executive directors.

The study shows the remuneration of all seven female CEOs in the FTSE 100, which represents just 3.5% of total FTSE 100 CEO remuneration. Their mean 2017 pay of £2.8 million pay is less than half that of their male counterparts.
